The Chilaw court today imposed a ban on protests between August 13 – 22 near the Muneshwaram temple.
The ban was imposed following a request put forward by the Chilaw police in order to maintain peace in the area.
Animal sacrifices take place at the Temple annually but last year it was disrupted by protests.
Eventually the Munneshwaram Bhadrakali Amman Hindu temple in Chilaw had last year decided to cancel the animal sacrifice.
This year the animal sacrifice is scheduled to take place next week. (Colombo Gazette)
